I worked at the Albion drop forging Endemere Road off Lockhurst Lane 1955 to 1964. I think the confusion is because there was a Brett's next to the drop near the railway bridge. I seem to remember it was where the drawings were made. Over the bridge was the Black Pad. Hope this helps Thumbs up

Only just come across this item. I also worked at Albion Drop Forgings till they shut down. I worked with Gil as his hammer driver and also worked with Fred after Gil went to America. I hope you two are still keeping well. John

My dad worked at Albion Drop late 50s and 60s. I used to take him some pieces when he worked a double shift. Everyone was on piecework so worked like madmen, a truly hellish place. Accidents were common, my dad lost the fingers of his right hand there. Edited by member, 8th Jan 2019 10:12 pm

Always thought Bretts Stamping was at the bottom of Northey Road?
